Utility Operations Superintendent - SJRA

“SJRA has had the Headworks Bar Screens in service since 1999 (WWTP 1), and 2004 (WWTP 2) and they had served reliably without much operator intervention or any serious maintenance issues. In 2013, SJRA decided to reduce the screen size from ½ inch to 3/16 inch. With the retrofit and Headwork’s recommendations of replacing wearing items, it was determined due to the cost to replace the units rather than retrofit them. From the initial installation of these 2 units to the replacement, SJRA has had to make only minor tension adjustments to the unit, and no other maintenance has been performed outside of the recommended preventative maintenance by Headworks.”
